About Ryan Piehl

My name is Ryan Piehl. Originally from Edmonton I moved to Victoria in 2008. I met my wife here, and also fell into my current line of work. My father in law did the development of the building, and thus retained 3 suites that we operate via VRBO. I work from home and am always available if you need me.

Ryan Piehl purchased this condo in 2007

Why Ryan Piehl chose Victoria

Its just perfect. I lived in the building for 5 years and the location was phenomenal. The suite is just so open. Plus with the parking, it would be hard to find something so well kept.

What makes this condo unique

My family owns a Spa, Le Spa Sereine to be exact, and it's just kitty-corner to the suite. If your interested in that sort of thing, you will receive a 15% discount on any service if you mention my name, and that you are staying in the rental.

Modern apartment in convenient downtown location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment enjoys a convenient location in downtown Victoria, five minutes from the Inner Harbor. We found the unit to be clean; in generally good order; adequately equipped, and accurately described in the listing. The building is safe and very secure with keys or passcodes required for the main entrance, elevator and apartment. We had rented a car for local trips and the included parking was especially helpful.

Ryan met us on arrival to bring us into the car park and explain the keys and passcodes. He also provided some local dining recommendations that were helpful, especially breakfast at 'Jam', a couple of blocks distant, that we especially enjoyed.

We were fortunate to enjoy perfect weather during our stay and were able to make use of the extensive balcony that fronts the apartment which is equipped with a barbecue, dining table and lounger.

All in all, we were entirely satisfied with the apartment and have no hesitation in recommending the unit to other travelers.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 7 year old daughter stayed at this place last weekend and we had lots of fun. Ryan was easy to deal with from the moment we made our booking and was always there to answer any questions during our stay! Everything was perfect throughout our trip! We enjoyed it a lot.

We found the place very spacious and had everything we needed! Our daughter loved sleeping in her own bedroom – allowing us to sleep in! The location is fabulous close to everything downtown: shopping, beach, restaurants; grocery store. The parking spot was also very handy!

We will definitely stay here again! Ryan is amazing to deal with and the place is perfect! This place is highly recommended!

Downtown rental

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is excellent and the condo is well equipped.

The 2nd "bedroom" is a bit tiny (it has a fold-out double futon), but there is also a sofa bed in the lounge.

Two bathrooms is a huge plus with 4 people sharing the condo.

Ryan was very friendly and helpful.

I would definitely book it again.

Perfect stay from start to finish! We were 5 adults in town for a conference and were more than pleased with this beautiful condo, it's location, and the free parking. The condo was spotless and had everything we required, including laundry machines and laundry soap! We enjoyed cocktails on the patio at night. We highly recommend this place!

Great Owner and Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the condo was great! Check in and check out were easy and Ryan was always available if assistance was required. Parking was secure and right behind the building. We were within walking distance of the harbor, parliament buildings and only a couple of blocks to a large shopping center. China town was right around the corner and various restaurants were close by. Swans Brewery and Save-on -Foods Arena for a hockey game are all close by. The condo is well equipped with an open concept and we enjoyed the use of the BBQ on the large deck! We highly recommend staying in this downtown condo with all its amenities. Ryan is super to deal with! A GREAT choice!

Great Location and host

  • 5 of 5

Location is fantastic within walking distance to everything you would want to see. Ryan was available as soon as we arrived and check in / check out was extremely easy. Ryan suggested local restaurants which we tried and really enjoyed (Red Fish Blue Fish tacos are a must!). Second bedroom / office is very tight and a little more attention to cleaning would have been a plus but all in all we really enjoyed our stay. The rest of the condo is very spacious and parking was included which really made things easy. I would recommend this condo to anyone visiting Victoria.
